Resumen del Consejo consultivo Anglicano: 7 de noviembre

first_img Rector Washington, DC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Submit an Event Listing Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Director of Music Morristown, NJ [Episcopal News Service – Auckland, Nueva Zelanda] Muchas cosas suceden cada día durante la 15ª. reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano (CCA). Además de los otros informes de Episcopal News Service, he aquí algunas otras cosas que tuvieron lugar el 7 de noviembre (hora local), el último día de la reunión que se extendió desde el 27 de octubre hasta el 7 de noviembre.Humo blanco sobre la catedralPhilip Smith, el organista de la catedral de la Santa Trinidad acababa de empezar la Tocata en Sí bemol de Louis Vierne como postludio de la Eucaristía de clausura del CCA-15, cuando las alarmas de humo comenzaron a sonar en la catedral.Los que habían tomado parte en el altar y el coro ya habían desfilado, y los ujieres comenzaron a instar a los miembros del CCA y a otros asistentes a que abandonaran rápidamente el edificio mientras éste se iba llenando de humo. Al salir, una nube de humo acre envolvía el atrio frontal de la catedral y flotaba sobre el techo.Un cubo de basura que se encontraba en un estacionamiento inferior al fondo de la catedral había empezado a humear y el Departamento de Bomberos de Auckland ya estaba extinguiendo el incendio fumoso cuando [los asistentes al oficio] salían de la catedral.En un día lleno de rumores sobre el inminente anuncio del sucesor de Rowan Williams como Arzobispo de Cantórbery, un sacerdote anglicano de la provincia le explicó a sus curiosos compatriotas que no interpretaran el humo como el anuncio de un nuevo arzobispo.El CCA-16 se reunirá en la Provincia de África CentralKenneth Kearon, Secretario General de la Comunión Anglicana, le dijo al Consejo que la 16ª. reunión del CCA tendrá lugar en mayo de 2016 en la provincia donde se encuentra la Diócesis de Malawi del Sur, cuyo titular, el obispo James Tengatenga, preside el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano.“Estamos muy agradecidos de que hayan aceptado la invitación para ir a la Iglesia de la Provincia de África Central”, le dijo al Consejo David Njovu, obispo de la Diócesis de Lusaka, quien también es miembro del CCA.El obispo predijo que la reunión será “transformadora”, tanto para los anglicanos de la provincia como los visitantes anglicanos que experimentarán la “pujante” Iglesia de África Central, la cual, según dijo él, se encuentra unida, a pesar de estar en un “ambiente hostil”.Njovu le pidió al Consejo que siguiera orando por los anglicanos de Zimbabue, que forma parte de la provincia. La Iglesia Anglicana de Zimbabue se ha visto asediada desde 2007 por Nolbert Kunonga, un obispo excomulgado. Kunonga, con el apoyo de la policía y de esbirros, ha confiscado propiedades de la Iglesia y ha usado la violencia y la intimidación para interrumpir los oficios religiosos. En una entrevista con medios de prensa en 2011, Kunonga dijo que se proponía controlar las 3.000 iglesias, escuelas, hospitales y otras propiedades en Zimbabue, Zambia, Botsuana y Malawi, que integran la provincia. A fines de 2011, los arzobispos de Cantórbery, África Central, África del Sur y Tanzania se reunieron con el presidente de Zimbabue, Robert Mugabe, y le presentaron un dossier que resumía cómo los anglicanos han sido perseguidos a lo largo de los años.“Las persecuciones por las que ha atravesado la Iglesia de Zimbabue” la ha fortalecido y “la han hecho crecer en su fe”, dijo Njovu. “Estamos atentos a Zimbabue para [saber] cómo lidiar con situaciones semejantes a la que ellos tienen”.En la sesión informativa de prensa vuelven al tema de la boda realLa primera pregunta que le hicieron al arzobispo Rowan Williams esta tarde, en la sesión informativa de prensa que incluía a medios de información locales de Auckland, fue  respecto a lo que era presidir bodas reales.Williams dijo que el tiempo de asesoría premarital que le dedicó al príncipe Guillermo y a la duquesa de Cambridge “fue prácticamente lo que hago con cualquier pareja joven y, porque ellos son una pareja joven bastante típica de su generación, eso resultó, a su manera, retador, interesante y muy emotivo”.El arzobispo dijo que también le dijo a la pareja que incluso si estaban conscientes al salir por la senda de que cinco mil millones de personas los estaban mirando, “cuando se acerquen al santuario no se sentirán así, se estarán mirando el uno al otro, a vuestras familias y, desafortunadamente, me estarán mirando a mí, y de eso se trata”.El oficio de matrimonio “fue en verdad una plataforma extraordinaria para hablar nacional e internacionalmente sobre el matrimonio, sobre cómo la Iglesia ve el matrimonio y sobre la importancia de este compromiso”, dijo él.Resoluciones aprobadas por el Consejo en el día de hoy:Además de las resoluciones que se informan aquí, el Consejo también se pronunció sobre [los temas siguientes]:Resolución 15.24, que respalda “El testimonio cristiano en un mundo multirreligioso” del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias; alienta a todas las provincias a estudiar y evaluar sus costumbres actuales de testimonio cristiano y crear hábitos que se ajusten a sus contextos locales a la luz de las recomendaciones [de este informe del CMI]; recomienda que las provincias discutan el informe con otras comunidades religiosas.Resolución 15.25, que agradece a los miembros del Equipo de Trabajo sobre Educación Teológica en la Comunión anglicana, recibe su informe y pide que se circule ampliamente, aunque advierte que sus recomendaciones “no pueden implementarse dentro de las presentes prioridades presupuestarias de la Comunión Anglicana” y recomienda que se procuren fondos externos para [financiar] una comisión de educación teológica y un director.Resolución 15.33, que acoge con beneplácito la Declaración de Cantórbery sobre el “Rito relativo al matrimonio” de la Consulta Internacional Litúrgica Anglicana (que se puede encontrar, a través de un enlace, aquí) y se lo recomienda a las provincias para su estudio.Resolución 15.36, que solicita del secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana que garantice la creciente participación de laicos en todas las comisiones, consejos, comités, equipos de trabajo y otros organismos del CCA.Resolución 15.37, que solicita del secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana que identifique estrategias prácticas para apoyar a las provincias cuyos pueblos son víctimas de disputas territoriales y conflictos entre comunidades agrícolas y pastoriles; el “tráfico de armas cortas, su difusión y su mal uso”; disputas fronterizas; narcomanía y alcoholismo; desempleo y delitos de jóvenes; tráfico, secuestro y abuso de niños y mujeres para rituales, trabajos forzados y matrimonios forzados; y que les comunique estas estrategias a las provincias tan pronto como se hayan creado.Resolución 15.41, que autoriza al presidente, al vicepresidente y al secretario a enviar una carta adjunta de agradecimiento a todos los que contribuyeron a “hacer la reunión de este Consejo tan fructífera para todos nosotros”.Todas las resoluciones del CCA-15 deben aparecer aquí.– La Rda.

England notch up 50 in Rome but Championship fate out of their hands

first_imgSaturday Mar 15, 2014 England notch up 50 in Rome but Championship fate out of their hands England set out to score 50+ points against Italy in the hope of surpassing Ireland’s superior points difference to give themselves a solid chance of winning the Six Nations, but they only beat Italy 52-11, so have to rely on a French win to hand them the title. Seven tries in Rome impressed coach Stuart Lancaster, who said he was proud of his team for going there and doing something not many other sides have ever done.“We scored some great tries and we’ve come here and scored 50, and not many teams have done that,” said England coach Stuart Lancaster. “There were some errors in the first half, but I’m just proud of the boys. It’s a great squad we’ve got developing and the bigger picture is important.”Mike Brown scored twice, while Owen Farrell, Jack Nowell, Mako Vunipola, Manu Tuilagi and Chris Robshaw all crossed for tries, with Italy’s Leonardo Sarto snatching an intercept try for the hosts.A string of substitutions late in the game appeared to affect England’s rhythm as they struggled to really kick on and pile on the points as planned. A late Robshaw try brought up the fifty though, rubbing salt in the Italian wounds.Italy coach Jaques Brunel has a lot of work to do ahead of the June internationals after Italy took the Wooden Spoon, having lost all five of their Championship matches. They play Fiji, Japan and Samoa in what will be a tricky summer series of matches for them.“We started this tournament well and we finished negatively,” said Brunel. “We’re behind in terms of what our goals were.”UPDATE: Official extended highlights (7 mins long) are now included belowADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Six Nations 2014 Related Articles 377 WEEKS AGO Angelo Esposito’s big tackle on Jonny May… 377 WEEKS AGO Stuart Hogg apologises after red card challenge… 378 WEEKS AGO Ireland and O’Driscoll celebrate 2014 Six… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Besides, “it is contrary to the laws prevailing in the territorial Jurisdiction of India, calling for invocation of Penal Laws for manifestly insulting the religion, hurting the feelings of the community and disturbing the communal harmony of the Country”. The Petitioner, an advocate practicing at the Telangana High Court, submits that a Religious Congregation was conducted from 13th March 2020 to 15th March 2020 at Delhi, organised by the Tablighi Jamat at Nizamuddin, Delhi where Scholars and attendees had arrived from across the World and from different states of India and the Organisers had housed them by providing necessary day to day facilities. He continues that after the conclusion of the meeting somewhere around March 20, there a was massive spread of Coronavirus causing the Government of India to declare March 22 as “Janata Curfew”, which means that the entire Country on that particular date was closed fully. Thereafter, lockdown was announced from March 24 to April14. It is narrated that “after the attendees dispersed to their respective States, and during or after arriving at their respective places, there were some instances of detection of Coronavirus symptoms. The participants who had come from abroad and were staying at Nizamuddin, Delhi tested positive and the ‘State’ took them for Quarantine as per the norms”. “Due to massive publicity given by the media that many of the positive cases of Coronavirus were found from Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin, Delhi, there was massive trending on Twitter attaching the religion to the disease of coronavirus”, the petitions reads. “The attaching of the particular community to Coronavirus is totally contrary to the Guidelines issued by the WHO on 18.03.2020” laying down that “religion shall not be attached with the pandemic”, the petitioner iterates. He has urged that, “to uphold the Rule of Law”, action be taken against these social media trends “by blocking the unwarranted tweets or usages which is affecting the particular community”. The petitioner has prayed for a direction to the Centre and to the Telangana police to require the social media platform Twitter to “stop the illegal trending attaching the religion to the pandemic disease”, for it is “highly unwarranted,, illegal and unconstitutional”. Further, it is sought that “online social media networks or sites be restrained from carrying any messages hurting or insulting the feelings of the particular community” A plea seeking action against certain sections of the media for communalising the meeting at Nizamuddin has already been filed before the apex court by another organisation of Islamic scholars- Jamait Ulama-i-hind and Supreme Court has directed to implede Press Council Of India in the matter.Next Storylast_img read more
